Guest Post by Mandie Stevens of Taking Time for Mommy
The day I had my second daughter the restaurant I managed was sold and they didn’t need me anymore. I found myself at home with two children, one being a newborn, the other two and frankly, I was pulling my hair out. As bad as it may sound I had never been with my oldest daughter non-stop. She was either with my husband or a Grandparent while I worked. Now it was us all of the time plus another one.
I was completely overwhelmed. I needed something for me and Taking Time for Mommy was born. It was my outlet to connect with other moms and feel like I was still part of the outside world. That was 4 ½ years ago.
Taking Time for Mommy has gone through many transformations since then. The newest being adding a blogging partner. I needed help! Her name is Amanda and we balance each other out. We’ve also started a new community for Moms called Time 4 Mommy. Where moms came come and make connections with others, find deals, giveaways, book reviews, recipes, crafts and more. We also have daily blog hops. We’re still a very young community but we expect to grow quickly.
My advice for anyone whether you are a working mom, stay at home mom, or not a mom at all…. Take time for yourself. You’re important too.
